No its more likely a loose wire or bad connector for the dash cluster.

Stability system disabled light on no power


The stability system is software programmed into the ABS - antilock brake control module also the PCM - engine computer . service engine light DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop or the dealer . You don't have the diagnostic equipment or knowledge to tackle this type of problem .

ABS pump and relay


First of all, make sure that your brake fluid level is correct. The brake, traction, and ABS systems on these cars all work together and if one thing goes wrong in any one part of the system, all of those lights will come on at the same time. Check your brake fluid level and be sure to use the correct DOT 3 brake fluid. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE with any other fluid. Let me know if your brake fluid level is ok and we'll go from there.

2 months ago my 04 avalanche oil pressure was fluctuating from 40 at take off to 10 when going steady 50 mph took to garage they said i needed a oil change and to add a luccas oil stabilizer in it and


The first thing any good technician would do about the oil pressure is remove the sending unit and hook up a mechanical test gage to see what the pressure is, GM oil pressure gages are famous for this very complaint, most likely the oil pressure sending unit is defective. As far as the other problems go it could be related.

i think you just have a bad abs sensor, most times when a mechanic checks a sensor they will tap on it to see if a warning light comeson or goes off, since you say it only does this when you hit a bump or pothole i dont believe anything is wrong, as long as your not hearing or feeling anything unusual i wouldnt worry about it, although i know a light coming on telling you something is wrong can be very annoying

I drive jetta and the ABS light suddenly flashed.any idea what was going?


ABS are your brakes and you dont want to take a chance with them going wrong as the abs brakes could be anything like low in brake fluid or disc binding and getting warm or hotter then the others as with abs it works that when you brake hard the brake pedal holds and then lets go for a split second and then grabs again ..but if the engine goes then the Brakes have to be 100% and you dont always get a second chance so get it checked out..
